the person is. there is no positive i.d. we expect more details at a briefing from law enforcement in an hour and will bring that live. we've learned the identity of the third victim killed in the attack, lindsay liu. the school confirmed her identity earlier this afternoon. 8-year-old martin richard and 29-year-old krystle campbell were also killed in the horrible bombings. 178 people were injured and at least 100 have been released from area hospitals. i'm joined by john king and cnn analyst. juliet, start with you. you are a former homeland security official. what are you hearing on the latest of the developments especially when it comes to this individual who was spotted on videotape? >> essentially what you said, you know, that the idea they would have a name that soon seemed way too quick for someone in custody unless he was well known to law enforcement already or was under surveillance. right now this is exactly how you would expect an investigation to unfold. there will now be -- trying to figure out what his name is but, jake, the key is what are they going to say at 5:00? we should
of this unfold. but let's bring in our law enforcement analyst here with us in boston. julia, come on over here. >> all right. >> let's talk first of all about john king's reporting substantial progress in the criminal investigation here in boston, significant development. we don't know what that progress is. but you know what, john is joining us on the phone right now. so let's talk to john. john, go ahead and tell us what you can. >> wolf, i'm on my way to you now. i want to report some breaking news information from two sources. one is a boston law enforcement source who tells me they believe they do have a significant breakthrough in the investigation. this source is calling this substantial progress. that source declined to be more specific but said to anticipate more details later today. now, i want to give you some information -- initial information important from a second source who has been briefed on the investigation. and i am told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to th
to this? >> well, we are -- i think the law enforcement personnel, the investigators are confident that the 19-year-old offender who's in the hospital was involved with the incidents on monday. as to whether or not there may be others involved, as i understand it we don't think there may be others at this point. but the investigators as they should are continuing to look into the matter. and authorities including myself are asking everyone to be vigilant but not fearful. to live our lives but keep our eyes open. to make sure if we see or hear of unusual activity to bring it forward. the investigation continues. the arrest of this offender is a significant step, but we recognize we have a long way to go yet, candy. >> senator, that's the challenge, isn't it? to be not fearful but vigilant. sometimes the two of those are a bit mutually exclusive. how do you figure at future events in boston, take the boston marathon in next year, has this fundamentally changed the way you approach large events in that city or any other city? >> any time you have an event like this, candy, you need to
that just passed here. this was a key area, an area where a lot of law enforcement was gathering. we saw a truck. there were armed personnel on it. we saw bomb sniffing dogs from the fbi. really, the impression was they were searching for an ied. something you would see in a theater of war, in a combat zone, not here in the streets of boston. you still have a lot of personnel. some have slowly been pulling back. again, it's a very active scene that's going on right now. we don't know the status. we don't know where this individual is, whether he's close. whether he's in custody. but by creating a huge perimeter around this particular area, what they do hope to do is either flush him out, or at least tighten the noose. and so that's what they're trying to do. they are going door-to-door. they are canvassing different homes, they are trying to do a sweep. remember, these people, even though they were on the run, they hijacked -- they basically harnlg acked an individual and then they fled and they were still throwing out bombs we're told either bombs or grenades or some sort of pipe bomb.
and thank you for your service overseas as well. we have just gotten this, a bulletin from law enforcement. people being asked to be on the lookout for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack and a black sweatshirt, possible foreign national, accent unclear, what the accent of the individual is, but believes to have some sort of an accent. we are just getting that information. john king is working his sources now. he joins us with the latest on the investigation. john, what are you hearing? >> well, that bolo, shorthanded police lingo for be on the lookout, just issued. i will give you reporting from all of our cnn team. a little more on that bolo. law enforcement is looking for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack, possible foreign national because of an accent. the bolo notes to law enforcement officials says five minutes before the first explosion, this individual attempted to gain entry to a restricted area and when turned away, he broke eye contact and pulled his sweatshirt and hood over his head. no further info on him is what the bolo says. this is law e
a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is. we're certainly digging on that at this point. you can see in the lower corner of the screen, we're waiting the white house screening. it was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. it's not that unusual for it to run a little later than what it is now. so we do know of course the white house press secretary jay carney will be receiving a lot of questions about these developments. but at this point it's also very much an issue, wo
? >> we're told fran townsend has a federal source, i have a boston law enforcement source saying an arrest has been made. that is a dramatic breakthrough. waiting for more information. i was told earlier this morning an operation was under way after they had clearly identified a suspect. the breakthrough came, remember, just last night, we were talking about how much progress they made in the how and exactly when. but they hadn't gotten to the who. i'm told based on a video camera at lord & taylor department store a few blocks from here, based on a video camera from that store fixed on the location from the second bombing, across the street from the second bombing, they got what they were looking for. video analysis showing a male showing up and placing the black bag with the explosive device in it, and because of the video enhancement technology, mostly dprept sto from the department store, they clearly identified a suspect, a single suspect and an arrest has been made. a briefing scheduled for later this evening, obviously. >> so let's reset chronologically. do we know what poi
duval patrick. i assume he has been fully briefed on every step in this law enforcement investigation. >> the governor is getting briefings constantly from both the state police and boston police, the fbi. i know the mayor of boston was briefed this morning. i talked to the mayor after i had been told there was a breakthrough in the investigation and he wouldn't go that far but he did confirm it was the lord & taylor video. that his briefing from the boston police commissioner about what they called, other sources called a turning point. and he said they were making progress and he was hopeful that there would be a definitive breakthrough quite soon. that was where the mayor stopped. >> the governor will be here fairly soon. we'll talk to the governor as soon as he gets here. governor duval patrick. tom fuentes is the former fbi assistant director, a cnn analyst joining us right now. what are you hearing? you have good sources. what is the latest information you're getting ob the status, the state of this criminal investigation into these two bombings at the boston marathon that kille
saw initially. then we saw, you know, just many, many, many, many hundreds and hundreds of law enforcement officials flooded into the neighborhood. >> and when it came to the actual moment of capture and arrest, did you actually see that happening? >> no. we did not see that happening. we knew when it happened because a big round of applause went up, you know, but the people who were there, i think it was probably law enforcement who applauded first and then all the neighbors heard it so we all applauded. >> it's obviously been a very tense time for everybody in that neighborhood. how are you feeling now it's all over? >> it's been a horrendous week because in many different ways, all of us have experienced the horror of the bombing. myself personally, i was down, i was about ten yards away from the second bomb explosion. so it was a situation where we were, you know, recovering from what happened on monday and then for some of us who live in watertown, especially in this neighborhood, it was kind of what we had already been through. it's been tough. >> you feel very relieved,
not answer the door unless the people at the door can clearly identify themselves as law enforcement officials. this mayhem unfolded overnight starting with a shooting on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology in cambridge. that's one mile from where we are standing right now at the scene of the boston marathon attack. >> an officer who was killed on the campus of m.i.t. was killed a short time later, a carjacking took place and a police chase took place after that with reports of explosives involved. during the chase, the transportation authority officer was wounded in a shoot-out and suspect number one was critically wounded and later died at the hospital. we expect a press conference in 15 minutes at the hospital. >> we have drew griffin with us right now on the streets of watertown, massachusetts. again, this is the area right now which is a very active crime scene where people are being told not to leave their houses where it is believed that suspect number two, the man involved in the boston marathon bombings and the man involved in this car chase and manhunt,
. >> reporter: that's right. a source tells law enforcement source tells susan candiotti that according to the video surveillance, the two suspects stayed at the scene of the crime. they stayed and watched the crowd, they made sure the bombs went off, and then they walked away casually. this is one of the things that may have been of interest to law enforcement when they figured out who in fact they were looking for, is the behavior of these individuals as they walked away from the crowd. the law enforcement source also says that there is another video of one of the suspects leaving his bag at the scene, but that video has not been released, and this source says that's because they feared what might happen to that suspect if anybody were to come in contact with him. i don't personally understand that explanation entirely, but that's the reason that this law enforcement source said, that that video was not released. in any case, the bigger point here is that these two individuals, their behavior was they stuck around, they watched, they wanted to make sure that the bombs went off and the
, law enforcement here in boston massachusetts released new photographs, images of two individual suspects wanted for questioning. they're presumed armed and extremely dangerous. those who see them are asked not to try to apprehend them or approach them. two new photographs were now released by the fbi. you're looking at those now. the individuals wanted for questioning appear to be young men, one wearing a white hat, one wearing a black hat. even more photographs. here are still newer photographs just released in the last 15 minutes or so by the fbi. you see the two individuals standing next to each other in the top photograph and there is another photograph of the young man in the white hat wanted for questioning in these terrorist attacks. these were just released in the last few minutes. interestingly, in the middle of the night bit fbi. to recap about tonight's activities. at roughly 10:00 or so this evening on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology, a prestigious university here in the boston area, specifically in cambridge, there was a shooting of a police
:15, 5:30 p.m. eastern time, law enforcement officials put out the photographs, the images of two individuals who are suspects in the terrorist attacks on monday. since then another image, one that was found on facebook and authenticated by "the new york times" has emerged with a better photographic image of one of those suspects. now, perhaps entirely unrelated, at roughly 10:30 this evening, an officer was killed on the campus of mi.t. in cambridge, massachusetts. in addition in cambridge, there was a carjacking that may or may not have been related to the officer killed. then in addition, not long after that, in watertown, massachusetts, one suspect was apprehended. the fbi has been present and the significance for international viewers who may not know this, the fbi is federal bureau of investigation so they would be involved in big major crimes, not just local crimes. the fbi was on the campus of m.i.t. in cambridge. they were also present in watertown, massachusetts, where this one suspect was apprehended. other than that we don't know. we have three events. they might be co
by at this hour for a news conference from watertown, from law enforcement official there is. we will bring that to you the very second it starts. in the meantime, let's go to drew griffin on the streets of watertown all night tracking this story. let's get the very latest. drew? >> reporter: i can tell you that the suspect we saw getting into the car, the one that was ordered naked, has been questioned now three different times by the different various agencies we have here. and my producer, david fitzpatrick, just observed the man. he is still being held here on the scene, which to me is somewhat peculiar. he was, as you say, ordered to strip naked completely. obviously, the police were very concerned because earlier in the evening during this chase we were told by the massachusetts state police spokesperson that multiple possible explosive devices were used against police here at the incident in watertown, from witnesses who saw and heard what happened, we believe that some of those possible explosive devices were actually thrown from a fleeing car at the police. so it was a very chaotic
thousands of law enforcement military personnel searching for this 19-year-old? >> well, they're working very hard obviously to find him. the question is whether or not he is still in the area. you have to do two three things. follow up on any leads they get based on tips, they're going to identify some locations where he might go to seek shelter -- family, friends, neighbors, that sort of thing -- then they'll look at the area they saw him last. that is the area of the shootout. they'll process the scene to see whether there is any blood evidence there that might actually be connected to somebody other than his brother. that would help them determine whether he is injured. >> his 26-year-old brother is now dead. we're told in the shootout with law enforcement he was discovered having explosive, an explosive vest almost like a suicide bomb vest. that's why there is so much concern that perhaps the younger brother, the 19-year-old who is still on the loose right now may also be wearing some sort of explosive device. that could be extremely dangerous. >> sure. that is the reason why they'r
for law enforcement, for civilians, people in the neighborhood. so i want to be careful in what's -- in our reporting. >> we do. they want to take the suspect alive and avoid any casualties. the suspect has already killed a number of people. >> yeah, let's hope no one else is hurt. >> drew, what are you seeing right now. >> just more of the same, erin. just different kinds of vehicles. we saw s.w.a.t. vehicles. we saw different kind of, you know, tactical vehicles all heading down the direction. david fitzpatrick, my producer, is heading that way. we asked him to -- if he sees, smells, smoke to call in immediately to tell us what is happening. but just to recap, other than that first burst of gunfire we haven't heard any gunfire since. but that is what sparked this tremendous amount of activity from local law enforcement heading all in the same direction. and it just seems like in an instant that entire ramped up feeling that we had last night here in downtown watertown has surfaced again where all the police are once again on edge and we're just waiting to find out what's going
, a neighbor, who quickly alerted law enforcement. at 8:40 eastern, applause on the scene as we heard moments ago. and moments later, this tweet from the boston police department, "suspect in custody. officers sweeping the area. stand by for further info. "president obama will speak a minute or so from now. the suspect is taken alive, now in the hospital in serious condition. the exact meaning of that unclear. let's go to jessica yellin who is standing by at the white house. jessica? >> reporter: anderson, this is an opportunity for the president to come out here and cheer on boston. thank the police there, honor the victims, and remind the nation that america doesn't stop for terrorism. president obama watched all of this unfold and the capture go down live on television in the white house as the rest of the nation did. as soon as he learned that the capture was happening, he went across the coloinated, over to the oval office and sat there with staff where he got a call from fbi director muller who officially notified him that it was true, the suspect was captured alive. then the president
, for the boston marathon, overall. that includes state police, boston city police, and other law enforcement agencies. specifically we asked questions about if security will disburse. some of the people in the back of the pack are coming across. he said absolutely not, the security levels remain the same until the close of the race at about 4:45 p.m. so learning more about the security from last year. on the surveillance, what we're told is they're asking and co combing through thousands of frames or surveillance video. and so they're looking for media out l o outlets, they have mountains of evidence, merchants along the area, and a restaurant called the atlantic fish company, a crate and barrel there. so a lot of video. you put together the surveillance video with something that a private person shot to establish a time line, that's what experts are telling us. >>> also, this marathon on monday was one of the most photographed events in the nation. >>> we're getting breaking news in right now, letsz 's go to ca costello. >> this is really a concern. a letter addressed to president obama con
of the young men. they were of particular interest to law enforcement because of where they were standing. they arrived early and stayed throughout the course of the race. they were carrying backpacks. another had a duffle bag. it just didn't look right. it was the bulges on the backpack. investigators were looking at frame by frame to see what doesn't look right. these two men sort of fit that definition, that description. so absent context they basically had a look at the normal and said there is something abnormal about this. anyway they ultimately ruled them out. investigators have a lot of pictures they're analyzing right now. there are other people that are on the radar. now we've got to find them and they've got to either rule them out or they've got to raise them in terms of priority on the list. they're looking at surveillance. we are told they're looking at surveillance cameras that were along the route up to a week before and two weeks before so they can see who was traveling, who was looking for locations, possibly scouting those locations. this is going to be an intensive inv
distributed to law enforcement officials, there was some confusion earlier in the day and now we're getting it from the fbi, from here in boston, from the justice department in washington from the boston police and the governor of massachusetts told cnn a short while ago, there are no arrests, no one in custody. i will say i spoke to the boston mayor and he said that when he was briefed this morning he became quite optimistic a big break through was imminent. >> the government on monday afternoon along the investigation that's going on, i was briefed early this morning about the investigation and i think we're making head way. i hope that in the near future we have a definitive answer to this question of who did it. but until the fbi is satisfied they have the right person, we can't go public on it at all. >> yeah, the mayor also confirmed source accounts that it was lord & taylor was the department store where they got the test video. i was also told by a source that there was a video by a boston television station that was around that spot at the same time and they know they have been goi
king, with night falling, night is actually to the advantage of law enforcement personnel. they have night vision goggles. they can control the night and if they want, they can light up the scene. >> they believe they have a tactical advantage this time as opposed to last night when they were surprised and the suspect escaped. they want to take their time, because of the risks to law enforcement and the risk to the neighborhood and because they are now amassing overwhelming presence to the point that they have essentially eye contact. they have visual contact with this believed to be the suspect and there are reports going in and among law enforcement on the scene as well as back to state officials, city officials, as far back as the justice department, the fbi in washington, trying to coordinate now the next move. yes, they believe they have a tactical advantage. they brought in extra units, military style vehicles in case there are explosives there. they have lighting and night vision equipment and the like if they decide to use that. and the question now is they believe time is th
are you learning? >> wolf, a law enforcement official told me today that authorities are preparing for a long and slow investigation here and it starts with pieces of the explosive devices scattered along an enormous crime scene. even before the dust started to settle, authorities were asking what kind of explosive device created this. the picture of the bombs now starting to emerge is that they were deadly but crude. a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the boston bomb investigation tells cnn the bombs were hidden in bags inside a metal pressure cooker. a law enforcement source also told cnn that it's likely but not certain that a timing device was used to detonate the bomb. emergency room doctors said they believed the bombs contained bbs and nails intended by the bomber to kill or maim as many people as possible. >> there were a variety of sharp objects that we found in their bodies, probably this bomb had multiple metallic fragments in them and we removed them. >> mike bouchard is a former top official with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. >> it cou
it was so hard to talk about. i've talked to doctors and law enforcement officials who have seen a lot of bad things in their day and they have a hard time talking about the carnage they saw yesterday. pamela, thank you very much. >> reporter: we're just getting word into cnn that president obama will make a statement 11:30 a.m. eastern time from the white house briefing room. not sure if it's an update on the investigation, if he has new news. but, again, that statement coming at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. we will of course bring it to you the second it happens. what happened in boston was terrifying for hundreds who were there at the scene when the bombs went off. it's terrifying to look at the video. cassidy brettler witnessed the terror firsthand. this is what she told cnn. >> i don't know. i mean, honestly, i got home last night about 11:00 and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day. i had been trying to remain composed. on social media and video just portray what was going on and tell my story. but by the time i was trying to fall asleep, it was hitting me,
in photographs sent to law enforcement agencies are no longer of high interest to investigators. investigators have been combing through surveillance video dating at least a week before the bombings a source saying they are trying to identify anyone who may have scouted the area. technicians by the way, the fbi's national laboratory in virginia will try to reconstruct the bombs based on remains of a pressure cooker, metal pellets, and a shredded backpack sent to the scene. drew griffin is over at the news conference awaiting the start. we're going to hear from the fbi agent in charge. set the scene for us. >> reporter: it just got very chaotic. the fbi agents brought in two easels. they have two black what look like photos they're going to turn over and show us at any moment now. we may be getting to see the actual evidence that they want us to see whether that's photos of actual people involved or more photos of devices. there's a lot of anticipation here, wolf. i'll tell you as they brought in the easels, the cameras that are jammed into this small conference room at the sheraton hotel just
on the ground as law enforcement officials surround him. he was take en by ambulance to e hospital. all across the city, cheering crowds. chanting usa, usa. what he and his brother are accused of doing is horrific. the suspects sho the to death a young m.i.t. policeman and people are paying tribute to the victims at a memorial. earlier president obama had this to say about the stunning turn of events. >> all in all it's been a tough week. but we've seen the character of our country once more and as president, i'm confident that we have the courage and resilience and spirit to overcome these challenges. and to go forward. as one nation under god, in indivisib indivisible. >> his stepson, robert duffy joins me on the phone. mr. duffy, thank you so much for joining me. what an extraordinary day for your familiar len a indeed the city of boston. tell me exactly what happened. >> first i'd just like to start by thanking everybody in law enforcement for doing an unbelievable job. i mean, hats off to everybody about how quickly this, you know, literally 20, almost 30 hours ago photos released, here w
, that recovery could take awhile. so we do know that federal law enforcement has been in there since last night and that they have been thinking about what kinds of charges they want to bring against him. it seems clear there will be federal charges and those will include terrorism. now we don't know exactly what's going on in there. we don't know anything beyond that he's in serious condition. we don't know any other medical or surgical details. jake? >> how intense is the security there? how does a hospital handle security for someone like this? >> it's very intense. there's a big police presence behind me. they are not even letting us go into the lobby to use the bathrooms or anything, which is unusual having done tons of stories like this. they usually let the media go in and out and get a cup of coffee. they reason even allowing that here. i was speaking with a doctor who frequently worked on inmates and suspects in another city. he said under these circumstances it was pretty likely that the suspect would be handcuffed to the bed and have two guards, one on each side of the bed, in additi
me give you. mike brooks is our law enforcement analyst, he is being told that senator wicker now has protective detail, meaning he has security around him, because of the fact that he received this letter which was tested positive for the poison ricin. let me just go back and tell you what we learned, and that is that what happened was this envelope came addressed to senator wicker, it tested once positive for riciricin, they te it two more times, so three times positive for ricin, so as we speak, this envelope has been sent to a facility in suburban washington, in maryland to get yet another test on ricin. this is something that we learned very quickly, actually as and even before most u.s. senators learned, they were briefed not too long ago earlier this evening from the senator sergeant at arms and they were told that this certainly is essentially very harmful, but they were also calmed a bit by reminding them that this is the reason why they have a facility that's offsite where they sort your mail, it doesn't come directly to their offices. >> it's offsite because of the anthrax
with the forensics. we know law enforcement has gone through these videotapes and are focused on particular individuals. they've gotten a lot of investigative work done today. and they are much closer. it was interesting to me, wolf, he didn't really want to acknowledge the -- all of the investigative progress that's pn made, other than to say they's encouraged by it and it will take time. look, they want to build themselves space to complete this thing on their own time frame. i do think it's interesting that he doesn't think there's going to be a press conference today, as you reported, wolf. it's been pushed back, it's been delayed. we don't know if it's going to happen. you know, you don't really understand why. there's a lot of coordination that needs to take place before they can have it. it seems like they're having a problem with that. >> yeah. obviously the governor suggesting there's not going to be an fbi news conference. if it happens, it happens. but right now he doesn't think it will. tom fuentes, what are your thoughts? >> i agree with fran, i think he's trying to reassure th
collective law enforcement team has pursued thousands of leads and tips. as i said two days ago, we're working methodically and with a sense of urgency to identify those responsible for the bombings. within the last day or so, through the careful process, we initially developed a single person of interest. not knowing that the individual was acting alone or in concert with others, we obviously worked with extreme purpose to make that determination. the entire force of the federal government, the fbi in boston, around the world, as well as our partners in the boston police, atf, massachusetts state police, and more than 30 agencies of the boston joint terrorism task force ensured that all responsible for the bombings will be brought to justice. more importantly, it was done to ensure the future safety of the city of boston, the commonwealth of massachusetts, and the country. indeed, through that process, the fbi developed a second suspect. today we are enlisting the public's help to identify the two suspects. after a very detailed analysis, a photo, video and other evidence, we are r
should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. let me reiterate that caution. do not take any action on your own. if you see these men, contact law enforcement. >> anyone with information is asked to contact the fbi at 1-800-call-fbi or go to their website at bostonmarathontips.fbi.gov. >> i believe and i think mostly talking to the rest of your show, they have video of these guys all the way through this event, lots of incriminating video, i'm sure, which brings them right to the crime scene and away from the crime scene. with he know from our own reporter how they behaved afterwards. also, what the fbi said today specifically, rick deslauriers said, look at these photos, no description. we're not giving you the height, weight, ethnicity. forget every other photo you saw and tell us who these people are. so they want, for some reason or another, they want the public to just focus on these two exact people and these two exact images. >> do not lead people? >> do not lead people. maybe they want that information kept so they can convict these people. maybe they don't want to re
law enforceme enforcement. give us a few details of the military hardware you're seeing. >> right now so far it's been split. and i would say the majority of it is being the massachusetts state police, the local campus police are sort of doing perimeter security around the campus as they try to help students get off campus. a lot of students hanging out outside here trying to get a ride home or perhaps someone to pick them up. then we saw the helicopter off in the distance and we know just sort of trying to look through the buildings and the trees, i know it landed somewhere in the interior of the campus. and i know that the dorm -- dzhokhar's dorm is actually over on that other side of campus. i don't know if the helicopter landed near the dorm, but it was definitely on sort of the other side of campus from the entrance where we are and where a lot of the students are coming out. then we saw that huge tactical vehicle from the massachusetts state police roll in after about four to five police cars came through. and then literally like i said just in the last ten minutes off in the di
rights. we gave that information out to our officers and i think all law enforcement was operating under those rules of engagement. >> back to the apartment real quickly. there were devices found in the apartment but you can't comment on what? >> no, i didn't say that. i can't comment on any evidence that was found there. sglp anything that was found in the apartment. are you confident that these two were acting alone and that there are no more suspects out there? >> i'm confident that they were the two major actors in the violence that occurred. i am very, very sure that during this thorough investigation we'll get to the bottom of the whole plot. that's all i can say right now. i told the people of boston that they can rest easily. the two people who were committing these vicious attacks are either dead or in custody. we cleared dozens of packages that had been dropped by people fleeing the scene. so everything was treated suspiciously. in a situation like this, bombers often target first responders so we were expecting another device. we handled that very, very carefully. the eod team
to remain silent. in a statement may be used against you in a court of law and have the right not to have your all the words used against you. you may consult with an attorney prior to any questioning and you may have the attorney present during questioning. during the entire proceeding, the only time we actually heard the defendant speak was when the subject came up about an attorney kurt the judge says to you understand i have said everything to you about your right to remain silent and there comes a not. and the defendant says no, the court says let the record reflect that i believe the defendant has said no. once again as you say, the court also answer to the record that he was mentally competent and he also appeared to be listed despite his injuries. >> how much more can they get out of him? how long can they talk to him? is there any legal limit or can this go on? >> it can't go on. normally what happens is the next legal step will be the arraignment. during the arraignment that is when he is formally charged and also remember even though he is looking at the charges of using a weap
, anderson. talking to law enforcement officials this morning, there's two steps. first the question, of course, is, what exactly the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities? the second and related question is, how much of what the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities do they in fact believe, what's verifiable, what they can check out, or what he may be saying because, quite frankly, his brother, the alleged co-conspirator in all of this, is not available because he was killed, you know, on friday. so, there's a lot for the law enforcement officials to do. and we just have to differentiate between what they believe the suspect is telling them and what they believe they can verify and what might be the truth, anderson. >> also lawmakers want to talk to the fbi about their treatment of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, about their interviews with him before he went to russia and any follow-up that they did or did not do, correct? >> yeah. and there's a whole list of questions there, of course, policymakers are asking and we're trying to get to the bottom of what re

. first, susan candiotti joins us with the breaking news. >> we've learned from a federal law enforcement official who's regularly briefed on the investigation. that images of two men -- there are two photographs we're tacking about here, are being circulated among law enforcement agencies around the country. and those law enforcement officers are asked to be on the lookout for these people, because they are possible suspects and of high interest. the reason we're being told that there's a high interest in these people is because of the timing of where they were right near the finish line before the blast went off. and also, because of what they have with them, what they are carrying. in this case, at least one of them is carrying what appears to be a dark colored backpack. and they have also circulated a memo, so to speak, among the agencies and describes it this way. the attached photos are being circulated in an attempt to identify the individuals, highlighted therein. feel free to pass this around to any of your fellow agents elsewhere. we know also that authorities do not yet know th

hearing is that it is what's called a bolo, be on the lookout. this was from law enforcement agencies, a law enforcement bulletin given to other investigators and all police in the area to be on the lookout for what they're describing as someone who is dark kskinned, possibly a foreign accent. they have no suspects in custody at this time. this person might have been carrying a black backpack and wearing a sweatshirt and may have been trying to get into the restricted area around where the blast went off before the explosion happened. now doctors are also, according to our sources and information learned by colleagues, are removing ball bearings from some of the people being treated, one of the victims at one of the local 4078hospitals there. this could indicate what the explosive devices were made of. it's described as screwed and sometimes small. there were said to be at least two unexploded devices. my sources are telling me one of the things they're doing, john, are to pick those apart. they would to get the dna evidence for the way they were constructed. as of now, no one is maki

surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
